with a september 11, murder of four americans in benghazi. susan rice yesterday withdrew her name from consideration to be secretary of state. the move comes after weeks of criticism over comments that she made regarding the attack in benghazi, and an interview with brian williams, ambassador rice was asked if she was blameless for the controversy. >> i don't think that anybody is ever wholly blameless. but i didn't do anything wrong. i didn't mislead. i did not misrepresent. i did the best with the information that the united states government had at the time. lou: here is what ambassador rice did say. on september 16, only five days after benghazi meant to the best information and best assessment we have today, is that, in fact, this was not a pre-planned or premeditated attack. that would have been initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo, egypt. as a consequence of the video. >> as she said, no one has been blameless. joining us now is the fox news middle east analyst. it is great to have you with us. what is your reaction first to her claim that sh
said on several sunday morning tv shows about benghazi, the attack in libya that ended up costing the lives of four americans. but by the time that whole thing played out, it was pretty clear that she was reading talking points that were put together by the intelligence community. she had very little, if nothing to do with embassy security itself. she happened to be on those shows themselves because secretary clinton had just come back from a trip and said she was too tired to go on them. there was more under way here though. part of it was a little bit of her style, which was very confrontational one and that probably didn't serve her all that well when she went up to capitol hill a few weeks ago and tried to talk this out between senator john mccain, lindsey graham, others who had opposed her. little bit of it was the white house i think after president obama came out very strongly in her support. she was afterall one of the first people to sign on to his foreign policy team when he was a pretyim probable candidate. after that, the white house did not come out in sort of a full-
've been told they have been reviewing and updating the benghazi report. that report was supposed to come out, come to her this week. she was supposed to testify at two very high profile hearings, senate and house hearings on the benghazi investigation this coming thursday. now obviously that is not going to take placement whether they have that hearing and have someone substitute for her is another question. but she is going to remain home all week. and apparently fell and suffered a concussion as a result of her dehydration from this stomach virus. alex? >> andrea, so you described her, she has a work horse ethic. i'm sure saturday at the office is not unique to her. so you can confirm she was not at the office, she was at home when this accident happened? >> reporter: yes. that she has been home according to the state department, she's been home since she returned from that trip about a week ago. and then did not depart again, i think she returned friday night from overseas, was supposed to leave again on monday. we all saw her last at the kennedy -- before that trip at the kennedy hon
hearings, all kinds of speeches, all kinds of accusations in the benghazi matter. let's see what the congress does now. and certainly, the president will provide the kind of leadership that is necessary. but it is time. after tucson, after arizona, a member of congress was shot in the head, and there was no response on the issue of gun safety and gun regulations by the united states congress. so we don't need anymore speeches. we need action. we've tried, many of us at the local level and certainly mayor bloomberg and mayor menino, their partnership, mayors against illegal guns. these guns, it's reported, were legally purchased, but obviously, improperly used. clearly, should have been locked up. the gun is gentleman is reported to have maybe have had some mental health challenges. so why would you leave that kind of weaponry, that kind of firepower available to someone who may be struggling from a mental health standpoint? so all of us have a responsibility here, everyone needs to get involved, the american people have had enough. their voices need to be heard and congress needs
was not. i was talking about benghazi. >> you do not use the word immigration. >> it came up a little bit. it came up in the following way. people wanted to know that the president cared about the issue. they wanted to understand not -- why it had not been achieved in his first term. this served almost the same function i view, that of a threshold issue. if they are ok on immigration, they will listen to the rest of it. if you're not, they will not listen to the rest of it. but not think it is fully the problem. it served a little bit in this anecdotal evidence derived from interviews. it was an issue. it was almost a euro can this issue. >> alphonso. what did you do on your thoughts and vacation? i know you organize an independent television ad campaign in nevada. explain to us what that means. how does that word? how does it work? what did the election but like stick to your personal experience and then we will broaden it out. >> the great thing is that it is independent. i'm not here to defend the romney campaign. we realized we needed to do something different. the latino vote would b
